Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Same software runs on single to quad CPU without any problems
Since the HummingBoard Gate comes with different versions, including different CPU versions, it can also run the same software without any problem on any CPU regardless of the number of cores.
Pro Some models fit inside a Raspberry Pi case
HummingBoard-Pro and HummingBoard-Base fit inside a Raspberry Pi model B case (but be aware that many cases will block the IR).
Pro Extremely extendable
Hummingboard Gate has a native mikroBUS system which lets users attach any “click board” that’s compatible with MikroElektronika’s system. This way the board can be extended by adding motion sensors, wifi cards, physical buttons, temperature sensors, NFC or Bluetooth and much more.
Pro Can be used as a media streaming device
HummingBoard works really well with Kodi and can be turned into a media streaming device with ease.
Pro Selection of great operating systems
Hummingboard supports OpenELEC 5.0, GeexBox XBMC, Android and Debian officially, but it can also run ArchLinux, openSUSE and Fedora successfully.
Pro USB 3.0 available
Lattepanda has a USB 3.0 port available.
Pro Integrated WiFi and Bluetooth
WiFi and Bluetooth are integrated on the board so your USBs are available for other peripherals.
The Lattepanda has a Arduino-compatible coprocessor for any projects which involve an Arduino.
Pro Can function as a day-to-day PC
Lattepanda comes with a full Windows 10 installation. While by no means a powerhouse it can easily deal with daily tasks such as checking email, editing documents and browsing the web.
Pro HDMI plus LCD and touch ports
On the LattePanda you have the choice of the HDMI output for a normal style monitor screen or you can buy the little 7" LCD and if you wish, the touch-screen option which means you free up the HDMI feed for other tasks such as playing a movie file etc.
This also gives you the option of not having to plug in a USB keyboard because the LattePanda will default to providing a touch-screen keyboard style interface via the combination touch-screen and LCD.
Pro Can fit most Raspberry Pi cases
Since it's almost the same size a the Raspberry Pi 3, it can fit inside most of the cases built for the Pi.
Pro Integrated arduino
Pro Tablet mode enabled (by code)
With the Atom Cherrytail, you could attach the board to a touchscreen to create an ultimate Surface Pro experience (except for the fact that it doesn't have a camera).
Pro Full Windows 10
Comes pre-installed with a full edition of Windows 10, including powerful tools such as Visual Studio, NodeJS, Java, Processing, and more.
Pro Faster than most other single-board computers
The 64-bit Intel Atom system-on-a-chip used in the LattePanda board offers greater processing power in comparison to ARM-based single-board computers.
Pro System installed on internal flash
System is installed on eMMC rather than an SD card like other SBCs. This means no extra physical components are required in order to get the computer to boot.
Con Pretty expensive
Starting at $70, prices can go up to $235 depending on the model and the components that users choose to add to the board. For these prices it's rather expensive relative to other single board computers.
Con No built-in Wifi for the cheapest version
The cheapest version of the Humingboard Gate doesn't have a built-in Wifi card. You can either buy it separately as an add-on or you can buy a more expensive version of the Humingboard Gate which has a built-in Wifi card.
Con Only Windows 10 is officially supported
While it may work with other OSes such as Linux or Android, it has no official images for these operating systems and may have compatibility issues.
Con Throttles due to poor heatsinks
This thing throttles down to 400 MHz due to poor cooling thus making it useless without some knowledge of computer building and modification.
Con No support for HDMI-CEC
When you connect it to a TV or projector it sometimes requires extra manual settings on the output device, such as for viewing 3D. Also, you can not control the player on this board with your TV or projector remote via HDMI-CEC.
